I just wanted to say I didn't come to non-belief through any process that involved hate. I recognize the bad things done in the name of religion, and I'm appalled by it. But I didn't hate the churches I went to, or my fellow congregants. There were good people and not-so-good, just like everywhere.
If one is going to tell a lie, make it a big lie, tell it loudly and tell it often and eventually people will come to believe it. ~Josef Goebbels
